The South Wales region
Pontardawe is nestled in the beautiful Swansea valley and offers a central location for all South Wales visitor attractions and superb walking; climbing, cycling, horse riding,golfing, surfing and adventure sports opportunities, being close to both the Brecon Beacons and the stunning Gower coastline. The National Showcave Centre for Wales; Carreg Cennan Castle; the National Botanic Gardens of Wales; Aberglasney Gardens; St. Fagans Welsh Folk Museum; Waterfall Country; Afan Mountain Biking Centre, Clyne Gardens; Big Pit National Coal Mining Museum, Llangennith Beach ( one of the 8 best surfing spots in the U.K.) are all within easy reach and whatever your interests, our visitors often say, that even two weeks in this beautiful, diverse and richly cultural area, is just not long enough to enjoy it all. Even in winter the magic is still there - you can enjoy deserted beaches and coastline walks with only the waves and seagulls for company. After exhilarating walking you can enjoy seriously good food in the many Swansea restaurants, then home to put your feet up in front of a roaring fire.
Pontardawe has lots of little shops as well as two supermarkets; several restaurants; a golf course( just over 6100 yards Par 70 with beautiful hilltop views); a swimming pool; gym; leisure centre, its own Theatre and Arts Centre, showing a wonderful variety of live entertainment - all are within a 2 minute drive or 10 - 15 minute walk of the cottage.
Ynysmeudwy ('water meadow of the hermit') lies at the foot of the Gurad mountain. You can roam freely on the many public footpaths that wind through the woods or across open farm and moorland on the mountain, with beautiful views down the Swansea Valley. On a clear day, Mumbles Head beckons invitingly from a sparkling sea.
The Swansea Canal is a 2 minute walk away and from there you can walk along the canal to Pontardawe - 15 minutes - sometimes spotting the rare and beautiful native Kingfisher. Nearby, the wide River Tawe wends its way down the valley to the sea and here you can picnic and sunbath at various points along the river; also cycle or walk on the easy track, often spotting magestic herons that fish along the river. The track is part of the Sustrans National Cycle Route network and stretches from Ystragynlais, further up the valley all the way (traffic free) to Swansea (16 kms) and from there along the seafront to the Victorian seaside village of Mumbles with its little boutique shops and eateries.
